When drummer Tommy Ramone died in 2014, he was the last remaining link to the Ramones’ classic early lineup. Two surviving members of the later incarnations — drummer Marky Ramone and bassist-singer C.J. Ramone — continue to separately trade on their famous surname with occasional tours and guest appearances with modern-day punk acolytes, to mixed results. But Richie Ramone could be the most legitimately interesting performer of the remaining ex-Ramones. The often-overlooked Richie was the only Ramones drummer to sing lead vocals, and he wrote several of the group’s songs, including the darkly compelling blackout anthem “Somebody Put Something in My Drink.” As with Marky and C.J., the former Richard Reinhardt continues to churn out Ramones classics onstage, but he also reveals more of an original punk soul on his recent album, Cellophane, which is both hard-rocking and seedily disturbing.
